Broken pieces, break into me
So imperfectly what you should be

I don't want you to go
Don't wanna see you back out in the cold
Air you're breathing out fades you to grey
Don't run away, find me

I know the battles of chasing the shadows of who you wanna be
It doesn't matter, go on and shatter
I'm all you need
Broken pieces, break into me
So imperfectly what you should be
Lay here, it's safe here, I'll let you be broken open
Hide here, confide here so we can be broken open

Let's enlighten the night
We can fall away, slip out of sight
When you drop your guard
Melt into time, so intertwined, quiet

I know the battles of chasing the shadows of who you wanna be
It doesn't matter, go on and shatter
I'm all you need
Broken pieces, break into me
So imperfectly what you should be
Lay here, it's safe here, I'll let you be broken open
Hide here, confide here so we can be broken open

Broken pieces, break into me
So imperfectly what you should be
Lay here, it's safe here, I'll let you be broken open
Hide here, confide here so we can be broken open

Lay here, it's safe here, I'll let you be broken open
Hide here, confide here so we can be broken open

    this song just fits so perfectly to brian and justin [from qaf].
    for you qaf fans - brian's 'broken' knowing he's losing justin ,all over again. it's sad but beautiful..and he knows he has to let him go.

    According to Adam, it's a song he wrote about intimacy and trust. It's such a beautiful song. It's my favorite song off of his For Your Entertainment album. The boy has such a pure voice; he's probably the best singer of this new time. Why do I put him so high, by saying "the best"? I do so because he can sing. I mean, actually sing. The live accoustic version of this song is simply gourgeous! Adam does not need to be autotuned or anything like that to be able to sound good. All he has to do is open his mouth and sing something. :} I hope Adam continues to do fantastic things with his career.
